Hurricane Harvey pets find temporary home at Pet Project in Marseilles

Hurricane Harvey pets find temporary home at Pet Project in Marseilles

Animal shelter evacuations are underway in Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester counties in advance of Hurricane Irma and officials are recommending that people with pets leave the area. Executive Director Sara Archer said 10 of those dogs will be pit-bull types, the hardest to rehome out of any shelter.

BAHAMAS Humane Society Shelter Manager Percy Grant said yesterday the rescue organisation's shelter facilities have reached maximum capacity as the country braces for the effects of Hurricane Irma. "It was supposed to lead them to forever homes, but when something as devastating as a hurricane hits, so much has to be left behind". On Thursday, Charleston Animal Society will be working with partners from the SPCA Albrecht Center in Aiken, Greenville County Animal Care and Charlotte Humane Society, along with Pittsburgh Aviation Animal Rescue Team in Pennsylvania to move animals out of Charleston. "Pets are part of the family", Fadem said.

The animals from Key Largo will eventually be brought back and will be available for adoption.

"The more people do that, the more likely it is that animals will be euthanized - and that's what we're trying to avoid", Staton said. It was a stressful thing, and it was both sad and happy at the same time.

The community in Tulsa also supported in force, with donations pouring in from companies like Southern Ag, PetsMart and PetCo and members of the public.

Oklahoma wasn't the only state to receive the shelter dogs.

Plesset said it made sense to try to give those dogs a home elsewhere and put dogs displaced by Harvey in those Texas animal shelters so they have a chance to be reunited with their owners. We worked directly with the shelters to take animals out of the shelters for those who were displaced. We are committed to saving pets' lives, and we are proud to partner with Best Friends Animal Society® to help save even more pets. Last week, around 100 dogs were airlifted from shelters throughout Texas to New Jersey to be placed for adoption. The shelter is working to ensure all animals now in the facility are properly cared for and/or transported.
